    Article, Communication - En anglais


    Treatment of raised blood pressure in the population : II and III : Objetives of high blood pressure treatment and strategies for the improvement of blood pressure control in the population. Paris, FRA, 1996/12/11.

    Knowledge of the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in hypertensive patients derives primarily from observation of populations composed largely of untreated subjects.

    Increasingly, however, individuals with elevated blood pressure are treated.

    An 18-year observational study of 8690 participants in a systematic hypertension control project reveals that cardiovascular events continue to be the principal morbid and mortal outcomes.

    Over time, the incidence of stroke and heart attack remained stable, whereas congestive heart failure (CHF), as a first event, increased tenfold after 10 years.

    Diabetes and evidence of vascular disease at entry predicted morbidity.

    Persisting cardiovascular morbidity in the face of satisfactory blood pressure control suggests the need for additional preventive intervention.
